Default Flu & Flu vaccine poll

Let's keep the conspiracy theories for another thread please; i would just think it would be nice to see the numbers here.

I want to know how many of us have had the Flu this year and how many of us had the flu vaccination THIS SEASON (since say July).

If you had any treatments that really helped or didn't, post up. If you want to list your location by state, feel free.

I have not had either yet (knocking on particle board).





No bears voting please, only interested in the human-impacting strains of flu.

Get the shot every year and have never had a severe case of the flu. My junk does glow in the dark whenever a black helicopter flys by however.

Vaccination, no thanks.
No flu, colds, or crud this season.
I wash my hands routinely thru the day this time of year. Haven't had a cold or flu in 15 years.

I have given out about 2 gallons of my special recipe chicken noodle soup to 4 households of friends and family. After eating it everyone was symptom free in 7-10 days. It was a potent batch of cure-all.

I had the flu just after Christmas, just now getting over it. Not real bad sick just running nose, congestion and some coughing. I don't do flu shots.

I haven't had the flu vaccine in many years, even though it was offered free where I work. I have run thousands of rapid flu tests in the last few years of my hospital lab career and never caught the flu, though I've handled positive flu swabs hundreds and hundreds of times.
